1-640x480

Here’s another contender to the crowded Ableton Live controller. I always stand by my statement that nothing beats physical controller such as PUSH, APC or Launchpad but unfortunately they are pricey. Well, pricey relative to apps alternative. At the moment, the leader of Ableton apps are TOuchable 3 and Lemur. But even by apps standard, they are quiet pricey at $20 and $50 respectively. There have been some FREEMIUM alternative such as Conductr and ths recently released LK by LivKontrol. According to Create Digital Music,

First, if you’re an Android user, LK’s Android tablet support alone means it just became your go-to choice if you have a tablet that isn’t an iPad.

Second, LK’s simplicity and modular design I find appealing, as you’ll see in screenshots here. LK’s narrower focus in its main controller view make it particularly accessible. Devices open below the clip/mix view and expand and collapse just as they do in Ableton Live. And dedicated views for MPC-style pads, an X/Y viewer, and MIDI control are clean and easy to understand.
